The owner/designer Carlijn Flint has always had a passion for jewelry. As a child she would sit and look at her mother's jewelry box and love to play with it. Last year she started a course in goldsmithing. She loves colors and pearls and likes to have them reflected in her designs. During her course she found out that she loves to be creative with her hands, but everything in detail on the square millimeter is nothing for her. She just had the feeling to make jewelry. Only by working with natural materials such as gold and beads. Working with a faster result is what suits her more. A few months later, there was Bonnie! By doing!
She thinks it's important for the jewelry to have a social importance as well. The Bonnies are handmade in the Netherlands not only by Carlijn herself, but also by people who are further away from the labour market and this way get the chance to be involved in a community.
We work as much as possible with natural products and have zero waste. She gets her inspiration from the trips she makes and from what she sees around her.
Wondering who the creator is behind the Bonnie Studios brand? Someone who is enthusiastic loves to travel and is passionate about sharing her own jewelry creations with you!
Funnie Bonnie fact: Did you know that the Bonnies are named by Carlijn's old lovers? They can use some extra color and pearls 😉. What's your favourite?!
